    Glad we have POTUS44 to tell us the truth since the squatter in the White House would rather kill millions than do the right thing.

    S Korea is smarter than 45

    South Korea avoided locking down any city, but only by moving early and with extraordinary speed. In January, the country had four companies making tests, and as of March 9 had tested 210,000 citizens — the equivalent of testing 2.3 million Americans.

    As of the same date, fewer than 9,000 Americans had been tested.

    Everyone who is infected in South Korea goes into isolation in government shelters, and phones and credit card data are used to trace their prior movements and find their contacts. Where they walked before they fell ill is broadcast to the cellphones of everyone who was nearby. Anyone even potentially exposed is quarantined at home; a GPS app tells the police if that person goes outside. The fine for doing so is $8,000.

      There are those that are concerned that tying his hands will make him more rabid (my word) or *more* vindictive in his response. It’s already being reported that governors are being advised to shower tRump with praise and gratitude in order to get what they need from the Feds to combat this virus.

    I was scrolling through last nights comments and echo Bob’s last post:

    “Hitler used box cars & poisonous gas.

    Stalin used box cars & Siberian refrigeration.

    Trump & @GOP dudes like @GovRonDeSantis use stupidity & @FoxNews to weaponize #COVID_19. ”

    I often liken tRump to a cult leader (e.g. Jim Jones). He is preying on the strong beliefs of many Evangelicals/Christians. His call to pack the churches on Easter Sunday will be heeded by many… especially those that consider themselves to be loyal followers. It will be tantamount to a mass murder-suicide.

    Question: Will tRump and his family be among the masses that pack the churches?

    and heads of executive departments from receiving loans or investments from Treasury programs.” (DK)

    • March 25, 2020 at 12:06 pm

      “Sen. Elizabeth Warren got a win—companies receiving the loans will have to accept a ban on stock buybacks throughout the term of the loan and for an additional year, and would have to limit executive bonuses and prove they have taken steps to protect their workers. Companies that have been mandated to close or who have seen a significant loss of business, who still retain employees, are eligible for a tax credit. Student loan borrowers whose employers provide loan payment assistance to don’t have to pay income tax on the aid. Additionally, it has $367 billion in a loan program for small businesses, as well as $150 billion for hospitals and other healthcare providers for equipment and supplies.”
